"Let's say that the main ingredient of this project is friendship. We met and a sincere exchange of ideas and experiences was born that over time has evolved into what is now the "Winds in Tunes" project. Actually, we both, without knowing it, knew how to wait for the music to arrive alone, we felt that one day it would happen and so it was and we consider ourselves lucky for it. Before arriving and deciding to record the album we shared a lot of experiences, in different human and musical levels: there were concerts, theatrical performances and even long periods of "silence"... cultivating a harmony that has always been present.
The musical path is always kept under control and at the same time participated. The reflective delicacy alternates with rhythmic dynamism and also with sound and thought cleanliness. Melisurgo's saxophones intervene on these scenarios, although often evoking distant references, they know how to maintain a good dose of originality and personality, giving moments that are now pressing, now lying in very linear phrasings. The sounds are well defined and in a game of contrast with the pressure of the piano.
Simone Maggio instead puts in place all his piano expertise, exhibiting a predominantly calibrated and academic touch, but in the improvisational verve, in the dynamics of the phrasing and in certain more percussive phases he also shows that he is familiar with the spirit of the blues and with the language of jazz. The synergy between the two musicians is perfect. The instruments are sought and always found wonderfully, they intertwine, touch, dive into dances now sweet now scratchy, climb into unexplored territories and daring harmonies.
The final product is undoubtedly very interesting, well structured and made with meticulous care and attention down to the smallest detail.
